john paul died in 2005, there was a period of nine days of mourning after his funeral which was 9 or 10 days after his death. there was a long stretch before they entered into the conclave. that will happen this time without the days of mourning, at some point after february 28th, the cardinals will gather in rome and assemble in the general congregations. they will gather and oversee some of the day-to-day business temporarily and that's overseen by a smaller group. they'll also gather in larger groups to discuss the challenges, the issues facing the church today. the state of the church in the different parts of the world. may have times to hear reports from different cardinals from different parts of the world. all that before they enter into the official conclave which is governed by a series of rituals. they'll actually begin the morning of the conclave with the celebration of mass. so they really gather and begin with prayer. and then they have a so long um per session into the sistine chapel where the doors are closed and locked and go in for the conclave and the voting of the se

was standing in precisely the same place back in 2005, eight years ago when pope john paul ii died and we went into the conclave which finally produced pope benedict xvi. that took a week and several false starts. when they can't come to a consensus you have the black smoke emanating from that special chimney in st. peter's and then finally the white smoke and then you don't even know who it is until the archbishop deacon cardinals deacon comes to the window and announces a new pope and only after that the new pope comes to the within to and is greeted. but that was still at least two weeks away. at least tweaks away from that being finalized. >> is the italian media still all over the scandals that are going on involving sex and intrigue, all that stuff that we've seen in those rome newspapers over the past few days, or have they moved on? >> well, they pretty much moved on. that of course was a big story over the weekend and into monday, the beginning of this week. as you can imagine it drove the vatican mad. they were really angry, angry with the press for writing about it, angry for people
